12 Days of SharePoint | Day 11

Welcome to Day 11 of PixelMill’s ’12 Days of SharePoint’ series! While it’s usually the other way around, we hope today’s tip encourages you to keep your head in the clouds. Enjoy!

For IT Pro’s, embrace the cloud 

The transition to the cloud has been the talk of the town over the last year. When we think back to 18 months ago, all we kept hearing was “We are NEVER moving to the cloud!“. As 2017 rolled around, we started seeing more talk of “ok, maybe the cloud“, or “what’s this hybrid thing?“. Now we are seeing many of the on-prem diehards considering how they can offload their workloads to Office 365 and Azure. Well yipee ki-yay my friends, your world is just beginning.
Cloud offerings, in particular those offered by Microsoft, are maturing quickly and it’s time for IT Pros to embrace the shift and be the agent of change in your organization. One of the primary concerns we have heard directly from IT Pros is that they are worried they will lose their jobs. We can’t pretend that there won’t be shifts in the technology labor force, but just because an organization moves to the cloud does not mean that all architecture, management, and support duties magically disappear.
So IT Pros, consider how best to provide value to your organization. Look into migrating to DevOps, which will help deliver solutions to your organization rather than just being a cost center. If the cloud makes sense to offload some or all of your workloads, suggest it, lead it, and deliver it.

Anyone who has 'attended' a physical meeting by 'conferencing in' in knows the frustrations & limitations that come from not being in the room. You're the voice in the ceiling & not equally represented in the conversation.

This is no longer acceptable.


Today, we find ourselves facing the “hybrid work paradox.”

Employees are keen to retain flexibility. At the same time, human-to-human collaboration remains important.

To marry the best of both, hone your strategy, spaces, & tech to suit employee needs.


It's the day of the show, y'all!

Join the #PixelMillWebinars this morning at 11am PST for a live panel discussion about what the #digitalworkspace looks like for a #hybrid team, & how #Microsoft365 can empower your users no matter where they're working.



Join the #PixelMillWebinars this Thursday as we welcome key players from @OrchestrySoft, @KieferConsult, and @AP_Mortgage to discuss the hybrid work paradox and how #Microsoft365 can empower your users no matter where they're working.


We've all been itching to get "back to normal," but what does that mean? Are we missing out on valuable lessons learned by trying to return to something that perhaps wasn't working before?

Join us next week for a live panel discussion on the new normal.
